Rallye wheels on Cs
« on: March 25, 2011, 05:33:49 AM »

I'm gonna take the good tires & wheels off my '70 vert and put them on my '71 sedan.

I really like the look of the Mopar Rallye wheels (the ones with the
roundish holes with trim rings and center caps),  Classic
Industries catalog has them in all sizes prety cheap.  So will a
15 x 7 with 4 1/2 bolt pattern and backspacing of  4 1/4" work on
a C ?  What would be a decent but cheap tire for them?

Put Autopar on it..

I have a set of 15x7 that I'm thinking about putting on my C... not sure yet though.. center caps are tough to find and expensive

Autopar?



Classic Industries has all the styles of center caps, but not cheap either. I figure start with the wheels and get caps later.

In Canada its a brand of tires that you can order in from a Chrysler Dealership under the mopar brand..

if I'm not mistaken the Canadian Autopar tires are made for BF Goodrich plant for Chrysler..

I'm running that size of wheel with the Shelby Cal. 500s on my Newport - they fit well.  I wish I had gone with a larger tire however.

I have an old picture of them on the New Yorker, but not a "real C."  I thought they looked great on the NY, but at 14" were WAY too small for those HUGE drums that car had.  15s would have fit well.

Those are the Road wheels with the rectangular slots, Steve, that were
an option on C's. What I want is the Rallye Wheels with rounded holes,
like on the pic Chris just posted... looks good, thanks Chris!!  I
think I like 'em with the brushed trim rings instead of polished, they
came either way.  I can't get AutoPar here, also they're pricey I
bet, if thru a dealer. So what's a good but cheap modern 225 70 radial
tire for 15 x 7?  I'm talkin well under 100 ea if possible!... I
got a local price for Cooper Trendsetter P225/70R15 at around $75, can
I do better?... eh Mr. Tire?? aka Leaaaburn...
